Štefan Papčo, “Faire Corps”

In 2024, FAIRE CORPS, the 14th exhibition of The Villa Datris Foundation, explores visions of the “body” through the works of 60 established and emerging artists, both French and international. In the Foundation’s human-scale spaces and in its gardens, visitors will explore various facets of this classic but relevant subject. How do we see the body today? The body is shaped by its structure and inner life as much as by the way we look at it. Since the 19th century, and in keeping with profound mutations in society, representations of the “classical” body and the “ideal” nude have been increasingly called into question. In this exhibition, we explore the body as an object of concern for racialized, feminist, and gendered representations.
